I have always been a Chris Doyle fan and have used or looked carefully at just about all of the different brands. I prefer the various Chris Doyle series because of his use of easily understood chartlets and his great organization of the printed information into need to know entry/exit info first and then harbor/bay info then local activities and the various commercial
vendors and stores. And the biggie - he has an active website to publish the latest updates between the guide book publication and today.

, I purchased a French Cruising Guide book in Guadeloupe
that was excellent albeit only in French. It has very large aerial photos rather than drawn chartlets and I love aerial photos believing that a photo
is worth a thousand words.
